Was it me or were there some 'personalities' in conflict on that tour ? I recently went back and listened to a ' best of ' of the whole tour . Not much there , a year away .

I really tried to get into it , Listened to all the shows, download some SBDs , re-listened , and ended up a little disappointed . I made me more skeptical on Furthur , which I like better ( though give me Warren's voice over John's any day).
In rumorville, I heard that as the tour went on Billy, got bored, and started heavy duty partying ; and ( I love this if it is true ) Mickey's "Old Lady" was on board , and a real pain in the ass , and the rest of the band didn't want her around (!)
Sad to say, I think they sound better as a band without them . Some of the drums segments were great, though I got tired of Mickey's set piece, things with the political stuff,( though it was hard to hear ), seemed kind of cheezy .
Still I would like to see them work together again , someway .
